Our goal: Zero Teen Fatalities

Some people believe reaching zero fatalities on Utah roads is an impossible goal. But when you think of your friends and family, how many is it acceptable to lose? We hope zero. And that’s why we’ve made it our goal in Utah. The Don’t Drive Stupid program strives to put an end to traffic-related teen deaths by educating young drivers about the importance of being safe behind the wheel. We invite you to join the cause and start saving lives.
